This chicken was phenomenal~ After adding salt! Instead of garlic powder, I used garlic salt. I also used minced garlic under the skin since I didn't have any garlic cloves, and put some of the minced garlic in the can of beer. We put our chicken on a foil lined cookie sheet and placed on indirect heat on the grill. Our chicken was a 5 pounder, we did 1 1/2 hours at 300 degrees, then cranked it to 400 for about 45 min. The chicken came out super moist with crispy golden skin! We will definitely be making this again!!!
I make beer can chickens all the time with amazing results, but wanted to switch things up a bit from my normal recipe, so decided to try this. Very disappointed. I made exactly as directed and this just wasn't tasty for us. The meat wasn't juicy and the paprika was over powering.
Maybe I had a sub par organic chicken? I may try this again without the paprika and with the addition of some kosher salt instead. I love garlic, and really wanted to like this recipe.
The best thing about any beer can chicken is how moist and tender the meat is - this is no exception. The absence of salt was very noticeable - this really needed a nice sprinkling of kosher salt over the skin. On the grill or in the oven I place the chicken is a heavy metal baking pan. The drippings make a wonderful gravy and all the rendered chicken fat doesn't total the grill.
I have been searching for a low sodium beer can chix recipe. Some ppl can't or shouldn't have the salt. The others can put it on their plate. Thank you Berube24. I also substituted butter for Canola Oil. Mighty Tasty!
This was sooo good. I knew it would need salt so I added seasoning salt. I can't believe someone would give this recipe one star without trying it!
Great recipe, Just pulled it out of the oven , so pretty I posted a pic on facebook !! Great taste and juicy .. sooo juicy , everyone loved it , thanks !!
The chicken was absolutely terrific -- it was moist and flavorful. I did make two changes to the recipe. Instead of using 2/3 can of beer I mixed it evenly with apple juice. I also used prepared garlic instead of fresh cloves.
Berube24, Simply Awesome. Have been looking for the perfect Beer But Chicken recipe - AND THIS IS IT!!!!! Moist and full of flavor, the best I have ever had. I even took it to a covered dish dinner at church!! Nobody but the preacher and I knew it was made with beer.
